They were driving past the city center post office when the snow came. Suddenly, everything went white! Mum drove more slowly, but at King's Square, she couldn't see the road, so she had to stop the car. "Let's walk to Uncle Frank's," she said. "His apartment is very near here."

They started walking. It was difficult to walk in the snow, but they got to Uncle Frank's apartment building and took the lift to the third floor. He opened the door of his apartment, smiled and said, "Come in!"

Soon, they were warm and dry, and Uncle Frank gave them some lovely hot soup. Later, he went out on the balcony and called, "Look, Sophia!" She went to stand next to him. It wasn't snowing now, but there was deep snow on the city below and everything looked beautiful. "Wow! What a wonderful, white, winter world!" said Sophia.

Dear Paul,

I won a competition at my school! I'm very excited because it's the first competition I ever won. It was a spelling competition. The children in my class have to spell lots difficult words and our teacher wrote our names and how many words we could spell on a piece of paper. I spelled the words, so I won!

The teacher said I could have a video game, but I don't know to choose!

I liked the competition. Spelling is my best subject because my mum gave a dictionary for Christmas. See you! 

Love from Kim
